Director Alejandro González Iñárritu has knack for attracting impressive names to his movies and his upcoming 'Birdman' is no exception. Emma Stone, Michael Keaton, Naomi Watts and Zach Galifianakis have all joined the project, which sounds like an interesting left turn for a filmmaker usually known for his pitch black dramas.
With a premiere date currently set for August 9, 2013 and a star-studded cast, including Samuel L. Jackson and Michael Keaton, the 'RoboCop' remake, helmed by Jose Padilha, is already well on its way. Production began back in mid-September and we've already seen what Joel Kinnaman will look like once he's all RoboCop-ed up. So, how would you like to see even more shots of our hero in action?
There must have been something of a scramble to replace Hugh Laurie when he dropped out of the 'Robocop' remake. Even though word about the script and the making of it have suggested that the film isn't going to be great, they've just made a great choice in casting: They're replacing Laurie with Michael Keaton.
Though he's played Batman and Beetlejuice, it feels like Michael Keaton's in some form of semi-retirement. Throughout the 80's and 90's he would show up in movie and usually be great in them, even if the material wasn't up to snuff, but for much of the last ten years he's been scarce. Recently, he had a great supporting performance in 'Toy Story 3' and then a juicy role in 'The Other Guys.' Now he's going to be in Larry David's upcoming movie.
